Gillian is a lawyer specializing in arbitration and mediation and got in touch last month to arrange a new headshot for her website and general business activities. As well as needing a mixture of more corporate and informal portraits, my brief also included a specific image for the front page of her site that needed some thought and conceiving prior to our session in terms of geography and content. The image also needed to be panoramic in format and to be shot with the design and dynamic of her website in mind.
As Gillian lives in Twickenham which is a 5 min drive away for me, I was able to visit her before our session to help her decide on outfits, give her very useful tips for preparing for her session and also to plan out the environmental images so that on the day itself this was accomplished easily, smoothly and without too much hanging around in the winter cold.
Gillian came to me for her session and we shot mostly indoors using various backgrounds and changes of clothes before heading out to Teddington’s Bushy Park for the environmental pictures and when the winter light there was low and at it’s best. I was delighted that despite her initial reticence at being photographed, Gillian loved the results (‘Anna, the whole process has been a pleasure’ ) and was particularly pleased with the time I’d taken to help her make a selection in post production and collaboratively on the retouching work. It was a testament to this that Gillian chose some additional images for personal use and also ordered a beautiful glacier block as a gift from my product range
My headshot / portrait photography service is far from you lining up with a number of clients in a production line of rushed 15 minute slots. I take time and care with you before, during and after the session to make sure you end up with images that are both relevant and that you really love.
My headshot and portrait sessions include:
- a proper briefing and image consultation including tips and guidance on preparing for your session
- a dedicated unrushed session and with the option to shoot inside and out and with a couple of changes of clothing taking time to get dynamic & relevant images that you’ll both love and ‘say’ you
- a private online proofing gallery and beautifully and professionally retouched images in all formats for all purposes and in both colour and b&w
If you are thinking of a fresh new you to kickstart 2018 please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!
